On Friday, Feb 6, 2015, we met for the Bay Area InterVarsity Winter Conference of PhD and grad students from universities in the Bay Area (UCSC, Stanford, Berkeley, UC Davis). The next day, we would create an info session in the … Continue reading The Intellectual Faith Movement #intellectualfaith
These lists have been popping to mind lately for various reasons. First, are the themes that I’d most want to invest my life in. The themes run throughout the list. I saved the best item for last 🙂 Education as … Continue reading Soul Searching: My Life in Four Lists of Fours
Right after the conference at Camp Hammer, I had a dream. I dreamt that I was painting a giant picture. It had a lot of nature in it and was a beloved project. Around me was “the church,” and its … Continue reading The PhD Winter Conference 2014 and a Dream I Had.
The older I get, the more I forget how I’d always felt I was on a different page from everyone else. Who are my people? I’m so ungettable that people won’t even acknowledge that they don’t get me. Eh, it’s … Continue reading Love, Faith, and Intellect: Story of My (Rainy) Weekend
